The Translatability of the Religious Dimension in Shakespeare from Page to Stage from West to East

This interdisciplinary study traverses the disciplines of translation studies, hermeneutics, theater studies, and sociology. Under the "power turn" or "political turn" in translation studies, the omission and untranslatability of religious material are often seen as the product of censorship or self-censorship. But the theology of each individual translating agent is often neglected as a contributing factor to such untranslatability. This book comprehensively traces the hermeneutical process of the translators as readers, and the situational process and semiotics of theater translation. Together these factors contribute to an image of translated literature that in turn influences the literature's reception. While translation theorists influenced by the current "sociological turn" view social factors as determining translation activities and strategies, this volume argues that the translator's or the dramatist's theology and religious values interact with the socio-cultural milieu to carve out a unique drama production. Often it is the religious values of the translating agents that determine the product, rather than social factors. Further, the translatability of religious discourse should be understood in a broader sense according to the seven dimensions proposed by Ninian Smart, rather than merely focusing on untranslatability as a result of semantic and linguistic differences.

Page to Stage narrows the gulf between printed page and performance to make script analysis for production or academic study more effective, efficient, and insightful. It examines the many forms of tension in plays -- between actor and character, between the stage and the world of the play, between the present and the past, and between characters-- by looking at stage space and time and a wide range of plays from Greek times to the present.

"The Dead Stage - the period of time between completing the working draft of a stage play and placing it with an interested party." - Dan Weatherer Dan Weatherer, an author turned playwright, learned quickly that there are practices playwrights can implement to dramatically increase the appeal of their work. Inside, you'll find advice that will enable you to better tailor your work to the needs of the theatre industry, without having to compromise on style, content or subject matter. Dan discusses his early mistakes, and presents the advice of notable theatre professionals including the award-winning playwright, Deborah McAndrew, noted actor Matthew Spence, and London Horror Festival producer, Kate Danbury (along with many, many more!). You'll also be able to read several of Dan's completed stage plays, which are presented in a preferred industry format, and often contain side-notes detailing the success (and failures) of said pieces. From budgets to set design, run-time to cast size, if you ever felt the desire to write for the stage, following the advice presented in this book will help improve your chances of pairing your script with an interested party, hopefully making The Dead Stage pass almost unnoticed. Proudly represented by Crystal Lake Publishing--Tales from the Darkest Depths. Interview with the author: What makes this non-fiction book so special? "Placing a stage play with a theatre company is (in my experience) more difficult than placing a book with a publisher. Open theatre calls are highly competitive, seeing hundreds of entries for a call that can possibly stage only three or four pieces. Quality of work is no longer enough to guarantee consideration for performance. The tips and advice contained in The Dead Stage allowed me to build an impressive portfolio of theatre work in a relatively short space of time. I believe it is important to share experiences if they may be able to help others achieve success." Tell us more about why you wanted to write this guide. "Throughout my career, I have worked to create opportunities for others, believing it is better to be a small fish in a thriving ocean, rather than a big fish in a stagnant pond. This book is about sharing my experiences and mistakes, in the hope that I can help others avoid the pitfalls that I fell into. Theatre, more than any other medium, is a tough industry to break into. Every piece a playwright will write will always be in competition with work from the greatest playwrights of all time. Theatre is a business: seats need to be sold in order to keep theatres running, and so often established pieces are booked instead of the work of what many might term the 'New Writing'. This is because they are considered safe bookings, and the theatre will, in most instances, not lose money. New writing is considered a risk. Usually, theatres set aside a budget for new writing, but this is often small and tightly contested. But theatre needs new voices and there are theatre companies willing to give new writing a chance. This book is my way of saying that yes, it is possible to see your work performed on stage, no matter your previous experience in the theatre industry." If you have a passing interest in the theatre industry, either as a playwright, director, producer, actor or working behind the scenes, then this book is for you. It includes insights and advice from an array of professionals working at all levels of the industry today. Their advice helped me see my work performed on stage, now it's their turn to help you."

Samuel Beckett’s theatrical works maintain a prominent position within contemporary theatre. His plays provide a prodigious potential to study several forms of acting, staging, and dramaturgy, as well as language and translation, thereby setting a fertile ground to tackle the problematic issue of the relationship between theatre criticism and theatre-translation criticism. That is precisely what this study examines by drawing attention to the fundamental characteristics of translated theatre texts as blueprints for productions and taking several aspects into account from directing to acting, from staging to performance, together with the language factor. To that end, Burç İdem Dinçel focuses on one of Beckett’s most significant plays, namely, Krapp’s Last Tape, situating it within the author’s oeuvre and along the way scrutinising not only the theatrical pieces but also the prose. By looking into the Turkish translations and productions of the play, this book brings forth a new dimension into approaching theatre through translation.

The performing arts are uniquely capable of translating a vision of an ideal or sacred reality into lived practice, allowing an audience to confront deeply held values and beliefs as they observe a performance. However, there is often a reluctance to approach distinctly religious topics from a performance studies perspective. This book addresses this issue by exploring how religious values are acted out and reflected on in classic Western theatre, with a particular emphasis on the plays put on during the Globe Theatre‘s yearlong season of 'Shakespeare and the Bible'. Looking at plays such as Much Ado About Nothing, Dr. Faustus and Macbeth, each chapter includes ethnographic overviews of the performance of these plays as well as historical and theological perspectives on the issues they address. The author also utilizes scholarship from other academics, such as Paul Tillich and Martin Buber, in examining the relationship between art and culture. This helps readers of this book to look at religion in culture, and raise questions and explore ideas about how people appraise their religious values through an encounter with a performance. The Performance of Religion: Seeing the sacred in the theatre treads new ground in bringing performance and religious studies scholarship into direct conversation with one another. As such, it is essential reading for any academic with an interest in theology, religion and ethics and their expression in culture through the performing arts.

Is it possible to see across space and time? Even those who accept that humans can reach beyond the conventional five senses typically think of psychics as "special" or "gifted" with unusual abilities. But David Morehouse teaches otherwise—all human beings, including you, have the innate capacity for remote viewing. David Morehouse was trained by the U.S. government in remote viewing—an exact scientific protocol for tapping the human power to gather information across space and time. In this comprehensive manual, he has taken his military training as an "operational" remote viewer and turned it into a step-by-step training system—one that teaches any serious reader how to unlock their natural abilities and become more than the physical world allows. Remote Viewing includes more than just a method for gathering information. It is a transformational tool instilling within you the absolute and irrefutable evidence that you are more than human—that you are extraordinarily human. As you gain experience and confidence as a viewer, you will tap into the collective unconscious that connects you to everything and everyone in the universe. Through David Morehouse's training, you will learn to touch the infinite source of life and knowledge that spiritual masters throughout human history have sought. David Morehouse's superiors in the DIA/CIA called him "the most exceptional candidate ever to have grasped this difficult intelligence collection methodology." What sets him apart as a teacher is his unparalleled ability to present the complexities of remote viewing in an accessible, logical, and artful manner. As more than 23,000 students have already discovered, David Morehouse has set a new and brilliant standard for teaching the scientific protocol of remote viewing. "You have the ability to do this," Morehouse says. "Something extraordinary is absolutely possible in your life." Now for the first time, he brings you his method for taking your first step into your ultimate potential in a single volume: Remote Viewing: The Complete User's Manual for Coordinate Remote Viewing, which also include a cool-down audio track.David Morehouse has found that this psychoacoustic “pink noise” track is especially effective for helping us enter the brainwave state of relaxed awareness needed for remote viewing.
